For January 1, 2014: From the Library of Congress' African-American Mosaic, the Influence of Prominent Abolitionists pages offer images, documents, and broadsides that illuminate the influence of the Abolitionists during the nineteenth century in American history. Featured are publications from the Anti-Slavery Convention, the Anti-Slavery Almanac for 1840, the North Star, Two Speeches by Frederick Douglass, and Make the Slave's Case Our Own by Susan B. Anthony; illustrations of the Anti-Slavery Meeting on the Boston Common, a Title card for the dramatization of Uncle Tom's Cabin; and a broadside of Anthony Burns, who was arrested and tried under the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. Use these timeless primary sources to complement your lessons.
